Dr. Akhil R. Krishnan (M.Phil., PhD)

Assistant Professor




I have done my Ph.D. in Molecular Spectroscopy from Annamali University. Mainly we have done vibrational spectroscopic studies such as FT-IR, FT-Raman, UV and NMR then NBO analysis, HOMO-LUMO studies, TED, PES and MEP. All the studies were performed in organic as well as some synthesized compounds. At present I have eight international and one national publications in peer reviewed journals.
